The Lions did the Bears a huge favor, upsetting the Green Bay Packers 7-3 today at Ford Field.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was knocked out of the game, and backup Matt Flynn couldn't lead his team to a win. On 4th and 1, in the final minute, Flynn couldn't connect on a long pass to the end zone, intended for receiver Greg Jennings.
The Packers are now 8-5, and they head to New England next week then close out with the New York Giants and Bears at Lambeau Field.
Point: Decisive advantage now for the Bears.
